Tim Tebow will love Gary Kubiak's latest comments

Tim Tebow’s NFL career has been one of the most bizarre and the most compelling in recent times.

The deeply religious Tebow was a star quarterback in college for the Florida Gators. A dominant running signal caller, Tebow managed to secure himself the Heisman Trophy in YEAR after a stellar campaign.

After being selected in the 2010 NFL Draft by the Denver Broncos, much was expected from Tebow and he delivered on the field for the Broncos.

Success in Denver

Despite Tebow’s failings as a passing quarterback, his running game and clutch play late in games propelled Denver to an AFC West division title and a memorable playoff win over the Pittsburgh Steelers.

But in the end, Tebow’s lack of passing ability and Peyton Manning’s availability on the free agent market brought an end to Tebow’s career in Denver.

Tebow hasn’t started an NFL game since that famous win over the Steelers, but the Philadelphia Eagles took a chance on him last month and there may be hope for him yet.

New hope

One thing is for sure, Tebow will certainly enjoy the latest comments from current Broncos head coach Gary Kubiak. The whole reason that Tebow is currently in camp with the Eagles is because he could have the potential to be a two-point specialist following the NFL’s extra point change.

“I think there [are] going to be two-point specialists from the standpoint of how you go about doing it. Coaching, those are things that you work on,” Kubiak said, via Lindsay Jones of USA Today.

League-wide change

These comments suggest that the future is bright for quarterback’s like Tebow, and Kubiak adds that the rule change will result in NFL teams across the country rethinking everything.

“You probably practice those things during camp. It’s not very much and, all of a sudden, it becomes part of the game. That’s a big part of practice. It’s going to change the way you go about doing things. I know that.”

Will Tebow be a success in Philadelphia? Leave your thoughts in the comments section below.
